Welcome to the historic Pigeon Forge First Church.  Our 100 year old sanctuary is one of the oldest remaining structures still in use in the city of Pigeon Forge and we offer two traditional Sunday Morning Worship Services in that space at 9:00am and 11:00am.  Our modern service, called "The Forge" meets in our Fellowship Hall.  Whichever service you choose, you will find a welcoming, warm hearted congregation of friendly folks.  We love tourists and residents all the same.  Dress is casual but you may "dress up" if you choose. We are very orthodox and traditional in our understanding of the Christian faith- you will hear biblical messages with application to life today.  We invite you to join us


If you are among the many who do not carry a checkbook or cash AND you would like to support the ministries of our church, we now have the option to give online.  At present, we can accept a debit card or credit card, but we hope to improve on that later. To give online, just click either "give" button in the top right corner of this page. Thank you for your support.


As we navigate a pandemic, we are asking and strongly recommending that worshippers who have not been vaccinated please wear a facemask to worship and Sunday School.  As a safeguard, we take the temperatures of all persons upon entry to the Sanctuary and ask that you join us at another time if you have any symptoms of a cold, flu or Covid 19.


Join us in The Forge Community Church on Sunday mornings at 9:30 AM in our Fellowship Hall. This new service launched in February 2021. Worship takes place in the style of a "Coffee House" that emphasizes fellowship, conversation and interaction with the message of the day. It is specifically targeted at young adults- but anyone of any age is welcomed! Here is a link to our You Tube channel-check us out!  Click Here



You are invited to join us on Facebook Live on Sunday Mornings at 11:00am.  You can do so by finding our page "First United Methodist Church of Pigeon Forge" or clicking the Facebook Link in the top right corner of this page. There you will see all of our recent worship services.  We also have a page on Vimeo (link is at the top of this page, too!) and a recording of each week's worship is usually posted there about midweek.



Parents Day Out

Our school year begins on August 15 and we are now taking registrations for children who would like to be enrolled in this Fall.  PDO is open on Mondays and Wednesdays and we would love to have your child join with us.  Click the "Parent's Day Out" tab at the top of this page for more information and a registration form. Please include your registration fees with the form.

Kentucky Flood Response

We are heartbroken for our friends and neighbors in Southeast Kentucky with the floods they are experiencing. If you would like to donate to disaster relief efforts, you may make your contribution to our church and mark KY FLOODS on the envelope or memo line of your check. We will forward all contributions to the Disaster Response Team of the Kentucky Conference of the UMC.  Other more hands on responses are available, for example, if you would like to prepare flood buckets. Contact the church or our conference website for more information.

Tuesday Bible Study

Join us on Tuesday Nights for a study entitled "The Truth Project" -a ground-breaking study of a Biblical worldview. This media based study is the starting point for looking at life from a biblical perspective exploring in 13 engaging video lessons the relevance and importance of living out a Biblical worldview.  The study will take place in Room 110 on Tuesday nights at 5:30PM. The dress is casual and the fellowship is great.

Here is a partial schedule:

August 2- What is Truth? (Veritology)

August 9- Says Who? (Philosophy and Ethics) 

August 16- Who is Man? (Anthropology)

August 23-Who is God? (Theology)

August 30-What is True? (Science)

Our Website Crashed!

ALL of our information was lost in cyberspace.  We are working hard to get all of the information back online. Thanks for your patience.
